    .

    Well, if you've heard the American Way CDs of outtakes from the Memphis '69 sessions, the bit that makes me laugh is the first line of one of the outtakes of Do You Know Who I Am, where he sings "Do you **** off too much?"

    (I've blanked the word out myself here, even though the term isn't an obscenity in Australia; but I know how you yanks are about it. Let's just say it's slang for pleasuring oneself! )

    And let's also say my mate jak might get a kick out of it!

    .

    Another good one is from the July 1970 TTWII rehearsal outtakes.

    During one of the takes of You've Lost That Loving Feeling.

    Instead of singing "It makes me just feel like crying, baby. But baby, something beautiful's dying" he sings "It makes me just feel like s**tting, Oh-ooh, I feel like quitting ..."

    I like that one as well, rof

    I also, and this is because I love love his laugh, but I got kick out of "Are You Lonesome Tonight"..."Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair".

    I have a question about Elvis changing the lyrics in Baby, Let's Play House.
    The original lyrics and music were written by Arthur Gunter.
    I think Elvis changed the words in one line of the song.
    In Gunter's original version it says : "You may get religion but baby don't you be nobody's fool"

    - and in Elvis' version :You may have a pink cadillac, but don't you be nobody's fool.

    I don't know if i am right, please correct me if I am wrong

    Oh yeah!
    Also in the TTWII rehearsals where he sings, "What's the matter, fatty?" or something like that instead of "Don't Cry Daddy". Or "Cause Everytime I cry I know I beat my little children so, I wonder, would it be the same tonight?" ..
    Or instead of "The next step is love", he sings, "The Next Step is Sex..."

    Oh man.. he was so funny.. .

    EDIT:// http://jordans-elvis-world.com/audio/cutme/16.ram Try this one out.. it's a studio rehearsal of Memories or so.. Its so funny..!

    without any hair

    I have this Cd that I got off of the net and it's filled with bloopers and rehearsals. There's a blooper of "Heart of Rome" on it and he changes the lyrics to "I'll take a **** in every fountain...." Then you hear the band slow down and almost stop but he giggles a little bit and continued to sing so the band kept playing. I cracked up!

    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    No Suzan, this one is different from " you gave at your bald head and wish you had hair". This is from the same song at another time and he simply says "and I'm standing there without any hair".
